COLLEGE PLACE – Walla Walla University is hosting three screenings this month of the short film “Color of Threads” in College Place, Dayton, and Pendleton. The screenings are free ticketed events and will include question-and-answer sessions with the filmmakers and cast members.  

The 24-minute film follows the lives of five women who move to Pendleton in 1909. The project was written by WWU alumna Josie Henderson and was filmed in several locations in Walla Walla, Umatilla, and Columbia counties.

Last summer, 15 students in WWU’s film program participated in the production by working alongside industry professionals to gain experience on the set.

Local screens will be held Sunday, April 21, 6:30 p.m. in the Melvin K. West Fine Arts Center Auditorium at Walla Walla University; Monday, April 22, 7 p.m. at the Liberty Theater in Dayton, WA; Thursday, April 25, 6:30 p.m., at the Pendleton Center for the Arts.
